Entry Routes

Accessible courses

Our flexible approach to learning means that we will take into account your work and life experience - as well as previous qualifications - when considering entry to a course.

Mature Students

We welcome applications from mature students who demonstrate academic potential - whether you have been out of education for a long time or have limited formal qualifications, we want to hear from you. We usually require some evidence of recent academic study, but relevant work and life experience may also be considered.

Advanced Entry

If you have appropriate qualifications you may be considered for advanced entry onto your chosen degree course.

Courses for Employers

If you’re an employer looking to train your staff, we can tailor courses to suit your organisational needs. Your employees don’t necessarily need a first degree in order to study for a postgraduate qualification - the right attitude and relevant work experience will also be taken into account.

In addition to our large range of existing courses, we work with public and private sector organisations to provide:

  • training needs analysis
  • accredited in-house training programmes

You can talk to us about your organisation’s needs by emailing

What qualifications do I need to study a Postgraduate course at Leeds Beckett?

For the majority of postgraduate courses we would require you to have an undergraduate degree, however the entry requirements vary from course to course. All entry requirements for our postgraduate courses can be found on our online prospectus.

When do I apply for a Postgraduate course?

For the majority of Postgraduate courses we do not have a set deadlines as there can be different start times throughout the year. Instead, we will continue to accept applications until the course is full. Therefore we would always recommend applying as early as possible.

Please be aware that some professional qualifications and postgraduate courses in the areas of Health and Education have an application deadline. If you have any questions about application deadlines, please get in contact with a member of the course enquiries team by emailing the Admissions team on or by telephoning 0113 812 3113.
